Sad news: SBS expert and friend of ChannelPro passes away.

We are deeply saddened to share the news of Eriq Neale's passing. Eriq Neale, SBS expert and friend of ChannelPro, passed away after a long battle with cancer. Eriq was on the cover of our March 2011 issue, and often a source for ChannelPro stories.

A technician, engineer, author, and community leader, Eriq was more than happy to share his expertise on the SMB market with ChannelPro throughout the years. As a Microsoft MVP, Eriq was a partner at Third Tier and the owner of EON Consulting, providing IT support services to small businesses. Eriq was often seen at various SMB events as a speaker and contributor, and was a key fixture of our community.

Here are a few ChannelPro articles featuring Eriq and his expert advice:

Eriq is survived by his wife Anna. A PayPal account has been set up by his friends, and donations can be sent to [email protected]. He made an indelible impression on everyone who met him, and will be missed by all of us in the SMB channel community.
